Create a 3-dimensional column chart comparing sales data for men and women, but omitting BMWs (if only you could do this in life ...).  Some notes are shown below:

Chart formatted

See below for a summary of the main formatting changes


The main changes to make to the default chart created are:

  • A chart title and category and value axis label have been added
  • The gridlines and background colour have been removed
  • The legend has been moved
  • The category axis label Manufacturer has been rotated slightly

Save this as Car Sales without BMWs, and close it down.
